Genome editing

Altering the genome, typically to better understand gene and protein function. This also paves the way for gene therapy.

Fixing the Code

The Code, Part 2: Does the ability to more easily change the blueprint of life mean we’re on the path to repairing the broken bits in our genetic inheritance? Or have we tried this before and failed? 

Finding The Code

The Code, Part 1: The race to sequence the human genome was also billed as a race to end disease. So what happened?

Preventing Dangerous CRISPR Errors

Even as CRISPR gene-editing technology is offering insights into genetic diseases, researchers are discovering new things about how it actually works. Newly discovered CRISPR mechanism may help prevent dangerous errors.
